May 26, 1952 — The Buffalo Courier-Express
The Mossadegh Project | September 29, 2015
The trouble with this 1952 Iran editorial from “Buffalo’s Best Newspaper” is that it’s based upon an unsubstantiated news item which we have never come across and cannot confirm — that Mossadegh announced his pending resignation within a month (tearfully, of course).
The rest of his alleged statements, including the quote attributed to him, are the first we’ve ever heard of them. So whether or not the Courier-Express were lying, the basis for their commentary appears to be simply untrue.
